Responding to the concerns of Golden State Warriors fans regarding Matt Barnes’ past and current issues, coach Steve Kerr told ESPN that he is comfortable with the veteran forward being on the team. In his comments, Kerr referenced the third-degree misdemeanor assault charges Barnes is facing stemming from an alleged Dec. 5 altercation at a club in Manhattan. Kerr made those comments made shortly after announcing that Barnes would make his first start for the Warriors in Sunday’s game against the New York Knicks.

“We’re aware of Matt’s legal situation, and we’ll see how that plays out. We’re comfortable with the process, and I’m comfortable with Matt,” Kerr told ESPN. “I had him during my tenure in Phoenix, and he was a great teammate, and I enjoy being around him, so I’m more confident that everything will be fine. But the legal stuff has to handle itself.”
